Dr. Robyn Mundy

Assistant Expedition Leader

Assistant Expedition Leader Robyn Mundy has had no shortage of voyages to Antarctica, Svalbard, East Greenland, Scotland and Norway. This is Robyn's twentieth year of working with Aurora Expeditions and you will find her passion for wild places equals her enthusiasm to share what she knows and loves.

‘Seeing extraordinary moments unfold before our eyes - often when we least expect it - is an exhilarating part of every voyage. These magic moments keep us coming back.’

Robyn is at home on oceans and ships, driving Zodiacs, and working out of remote field huts and tents. She has summered and wintered in Antarctica, including a year as a research assistant at Mawson Station, much of it spent out on the sea ice working with emperor penguins.

Robyn and her partner Gary, lived for ten months on Tasmania’s remote Maatsuyker Island where they worked in isolation as weather observers and caretakers.

Robyn is author of the novels Wildlight, set on Maatsuyker Island, and The Nature of Ice, set in Antarctica. She is co-author of an illustrated young readers’ adventure book, Epic Adventure: Epic

When she is not plowing the high seas, Robyn lives in Tasmania where she writes, teaches and enjoys the island’s natural wonders.
